    The story is getting better with each issue and the characters are becoming more engaging due to the writing. Read Full Review

    Tim Seeley's run on Green Lanterns continues to prove itself a worthy successor to Sam Humphries, with Green Lanterns #41, an issue that smoothly blends the cosmic with the human. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Eric Nierstedt Feb 21, 2018

    GREEN LANTERNS #41 works to get the "Superhuman Trafficking" arc moving properly, as the Lanterns go to the most criminal planet in the galaxy. Tim Seely moves away from the humor and clich storylines of the previous issue to weave a story of Lanterns out of their element. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt Feb 21, 2018

    As per usual, I love the artwork for this series. Hellhole didn't look as dirty and rundown as I would have guessed, but otherwise everything else was spot on. My favorite, unsurprisingly, had to be the giant pig (more like boar) construct Jess summoned. Despite its massive scale it had plenty of detail to it, while not overpowering the rest of the image (mainly the residents running out of the way). Read Full Review

    As a self-contained adventure, Green Lanterns #41 works quite well, with some genuinely funny moments (the construct pigs come to mind) and an intriguing mystery that doesn't go where you expect it to. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Feb 21, 2018

    While Barnaby Bagenda made an auspicious debut last issue, this issue seems less noteworthy. Perhaps its the alien world-building that throws me. When I was in art school, many of my fellow students were remarkable at creating the fantastic, but truly sucked at drawing the boring and mundane. I've known many who can design astarship, but couldnt draw a horse to save their life. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Feb 27, 2018

    The visuals do not help this story and are the weakest contribution to this issue. Science fiction comics depend on the visuals to sell the fantastical elements of the story and if they're weak they'll hurt the book, as they do with this. Still, if one likes Green Lantern tales, this will be an okay read, but it does nothing to encourage new readers. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Anthony Thornton Feb 21, 2018

    I had a lot of fun reading this issue. Tim Seeley and crew built a very interesting world that I hope we get to see a lot more of in the future, added a lot of info to the mystery that they set up, and made me genuinely laugh out loud a few times. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Jose "Jody" Cardona Feb 24, 2018

    While it's beautiful to look at, this chapter to the most recent Green Lanterns arc feels entirely pointless to the overarching plot. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Justin Cooper Mar 3, 2018

    The story is moving along, and dives into a lot of relevant topics, like swipe culture, but I think it has a disjointed plot with minimal dialogue. I am not really impressed with the artwork either. Let's just hope that this one is going somewhere because this was a somewhat lackluster issue. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Feb 25, 2018

    Green Lanterns #41 isnt an especially bad issue. Its mostly a weak issue by the high standards of this series. The pacing is drawn out, the issue feels superfluous to the overall story, and the art is under par in the grand scheme of the series. I can still recommend this one; its just not as good as previous issues of Green Lanterns. Feel free to pick it up, though. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Feb 22, 2018

    Green Lanterns #41 does little to progress the story and more to re-establish the existence of a planet that has some ties to Green Lantern's past. When readers can skip an issue and not miss anything it's never a good sign and this is unfortunately one of those instances. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Feb 22, 2018

    Green Lanterns #42 was a fun comic from start to finish. It wasn't perfect but as with life not everything will be perfect. I'm adore how Seeley is handling the potential upcoming relationship between Simon and Jessica. It's a case of girl likes guy but guy likes another girl and I'm a sucker for these types of stories. Hopefully this isn't drawn out to long and it becomes a will they or won't they situation. Bagneda's art wasn't the greatest but it was suitable for this issue and sometimes that's all that I need.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Feb 21, 2018

    The hunt for Night Pilot and the other missing superheroes continues here, but really, it seems like a look back on the planet Hellhole to remind people of how much the Green Lanterns are hated there.  The art in this issue is great, but story feels forced just to keep a running joke going and by the end this issue didn't mean much.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Feb 22, 2018

    I appreciate that this series is trying to find that balance between cosmic adventure and showcasing the mundane struggles that make up Simon and Jessica's personal lives, but right now the book isn't succeeding in that goal. Read Full Review

    Wow! A dating app called Caper is capturing D List metahumans. So the Lanterns capture someone related and had to go to a place literally called Hellhole, which is just a cheesy name (let's be honest) to find their next contact or lead.

    Hellhole felt like Seeley was really trying to make a Star Wars connection... and it failed.

    It also looked like Seeley was trying to push the relationship between the lanterns too much. So much so that it appears that the overall point of the arc will be to get the lanterns to start dating each other.

    There was even a part where one of the people on Hellhole sprayed what appeared to be snot or mucus, maybe pus, or something from his arm to get away. Unnecessary and unrela more

    Story... one word - boring. Art... one word - bad. I'm a huge Green Lantern fan, but this just DID NOT work for me on any level. I couldn't wait until I was done reading it.

    I really like the previous issue & this one have the same effect.
    I laugh seen Baz as a macho man with moustache ^^
    I trust their was a GL after Jack T. Chance in this world (In threshold), but i remember that didn't go well for him.
    I smiled when the too woman ask for a fake victory with pictures ...
    I want to read the next issue right now.

    Cover - I take the variant. So not related to my reading. 1/2
    Writing - Very good. I love all my reading. 3/3
    Arts - Very very good too. 3/3
    Feeling - One of the best arc for a while on a green lantern title. 2/2
